Sometimes things just happen

Your kid develops flu symptoms after your primary care office has closed for the day. You step on a tack over the weekend. We get it, things happen, and when they do, you want to be able to access care at a price you can afford. That’s why we’re offering a new perk to eligible Aetna members: access to all covered MinuteClinic services at no cost to you, or low cost to you, based on your plan design.

What is MinuteClinic?

  • MinuteClinic is a walk-in clinic inside select CVS Pharmacy® and Target stores and is the largest provider of retail health care in the United States, making it easy to access care in your neighborhood.
  • MinuteClinic offers a broad range of services to keep you and your family healthy. MinuteClinic health care providers treat and diagnose a variety of illnesses, injuries and conditions. They can also write prescriptions, when medically appropriate.
  • The MinuteClinic program is fully integrated into Aetna’s web and mobile tools and its provider search functionality. Members can use the provider search to lookup nearby MinuteClinic locations and estimate the cost of services compared to other sites of care. When members perform a search based on specific conditions, MinuteClinic locations will be highlighted when appropriate.

How do I use MinuteClinic?

It’s as simple as going to your local physician and receiving care. Your covered family members can take advantage of this benefit, too. You can walk in or schedule appointments online beforehand. And for even more convenience, you can pick up your prescription on-site. MinuteClinic is open 7 days a week, including evenings and weekends.
For your best health, we encourage you to have a relationship with a primary care physician or other doctor. Tell them about your visit to MinuteClinic, or MinuteClinic can send a summary of your visit directly to them.

Note: Eligible Aetna members who enroll in qualified high-deductible health plans will receive lower-cost care for covered minor illness and injury services provided at MinuteClinic and can receive preventive services at no cost share. However, in order to receive no-cost care on all covered services, they will need to first meet their deductible. Once the deductible has been met, those members will be able to access covered MinuteClinic services at no cost share.
